HUI Long Yan

許朗昕

'Life and art, I believe art is an outlet for life. The joy, anger, sorrow, or sweet and bitter, or mixed feelings experienced in life are sometimes beyond description. Yet, with space, colours, light and shadow, sound, pigment, smell…they were all pieced together.'

HUI Long Yan, Angel is intrigued by the mutual relationships of humans. From discovering herself to listening to others' stories, she believes that everyone is a unique existence, having unique experiences. Art is an open platform for everyone to dig into, to learn, and to express themselves. She often plays between glass and installation, to indicate the inner thoughts of her and the others.

「生命與藝術,我相信藝術是人生其中一個出口。生命所經歷喜怒哀樂、甜酸苦辣、五味紛陳,有時難以筆墨形容,但空間、顏色、光影、聲音、顏料、氣味⋯⋯卻能一一拼湊和展現。」

許朗昕對於人與人的相互關係深感興趣。從自我探索到聆聽別人故事,她認為每個人是獨一無二的創造,有著不一樣的經歷。藝術是一個開放平台,讓彼此共同發掘、認識、表達自己。她慣常通過遊走於玻璃和裝置藝術創作之間,演繹和體驗對於自己與人的不同想法。

「他被安排在單獨床位中被隔離,每次進去探他都要穿著保護衣及戴上手套。我第一時間就是用我戴著手套的手握著他的手。他無法說話,但總會嘗試用力回握著我。我無法控制生死,無法挽回不可逆轉的生命,只能看著他慢慢流逝,默默地陪同他走最後一段路。在他彌留之際,有一次我偷偷地脫了手套,用自己的手摸摸他的臉頰。在那刻,我只想用我身體的感覺用力去記住那種溫度和質感。」

「鼓」是近年我和自己溝通的媒介,而這次我透過「鼓」和他人故事對話。讓醫生手套成為鼓面,那種溫度和質感用鼓聲記錄,創造屬於你的心跳共鳴。

"He was mostly quarantined in a separate room. The first thing to do every time I visited him was to wear a pair of surgical gloves. I held his hands tight and he strived to hold back. I am so powerless that life and death are not in my hands, and that his worn body could never be reversed. What I could do is just quietly accompany him to finish his last journey, witnessing him go by slowly. When he was lying in a coma, I took off the gloves by stealth, to hold his face once again, with my own hands. That moment, I yearned for that warmth and texture from my father, and I hoped he felt the real-time love and life in return."

Drums have been my communication medium in recent years, and I would like to tell other’s stories through drums. Gloves as drumheads, and drumbeat as the warmth and texture, to create your heartbeat resonance.
